I've always loved the Corsair, particularly the mid-war four-tone scheme, and last year I built my first one which was Tom Blackburn's 'Big Hog'. A year later I wanted to do a new Corsair because I felt my skills had improved and I wanted [...]
I thought I'd finally get around to posting this Corsair I built last year, making it so all my Corsairs are uploaded here in one form or another. This model in particular taught me a lot and I am planning on basically remaking it (but as [...]

Monogram OS2U converted to an N-1 by saying N instead of U. It might be more complicated then that, but yolo.
The Naval Aircraft Factory took on building Kingfishers after Vought was told to focus on Corsairs in '42. This one served with [...]

My first try with [...]

A little-known fact of Corsair operations is that of the six air forces that flew the type operationally, two used their Corsairs against each other in the last [...]
Revell's quite recent kit of the F4U-4 which has some short cuts and emmisions due to being offered as both an F4U-1 and F4U-4. I didn't bother with most of the inaccuracies and built the kit mostly out of the box. The overall shape [...]
I suspect that most people who build model airplanes are very familiar with the famous Vought F4U Corsair fighter from WWII and Korea. Likewise, many are familiar with the A7 Corsair II which served the US Navy and later the Air National [...]
I bought this kit for $10 at a contest, after calling a friend to ask if he could vac-form new canopies, as those in the kit were yellow as burnt wheat! The kit was a mix - it has nicely engraved panel lines, some nice resin additions [...]
